Moisturizer ... Does He Need It?

Posted by Stryke Club on

Dr. Sheilagh gets clear on moisturizer and why you need it if you hope to destroy acne for good. 

Question: If I have acne and oily skin, do I still need to moisturize?

Even if you have oily, acne prone skin using a moisturizer is still important.  Regular moisturization of your skin helps to seal your skin barrier: helping to prevent dryness and irritation.  It's even more crucial to moisturize if you are using any active ingredients - like adapalene or salicylic acid to treat your acne.  These acne-fighting actives work by speeding up how your skin sheds and breaking up c logged pores - which can lead to dryness and irritation.  This is exactly why we formulated our Calm Down moisturizer especially for teens and boys - it's non-comedogenic (ie: won't make acne works) and actually fights bacteria and reduces inflammation while soothing your skin barrier.
